Hiking in Lieber State Recreation Area

Mill Creek is provender of 1,400-acre Lake and a home to beautiful Cataract Falls. These falls resulted from two pre-glacial bedrock ridges buried beneath ancient lake sediments of the Illinoisan glacial period. The Aquatic Center has a zero entrance pool, water bubblers and a tornado water slide. The park and the cataract falls offer two easy opportunities to get outside and do a little exploring with your family. Both of these short treks are perfect for little legs or older grandparents to join in and will give you the chance to let your family unplug for a bit. You will find shelters, a volleyball court and a playground. The park also features hiking trails, boat access to Cagles Mill Lake and a campground. The class A and B type campsites make this a lovely place to visit. You must pack your bags and plan a picnic in the activities field, where you will find horseshoe pits, basketball courts, and plenty of play areas for the kids. 

Activities:

Camping: Plan out camping with family for an adventure at Lieber. You will have a great time. Get curious!! One can go to the nature center and participate in national trail day. There isn't a lot of hiking here, but the trail that is here is a (moderate) one. The nature center is small, but still a good place to take kids. Get excited as they will be adding a new trail right behind the nature center. You will love that you can easily ride a bike from the campground to the nature center making this a kid friendly campground/park. 

Trails/ hiking: The short 0.75-mile trail featured on a very cute covered bridge is a nice safe trail through the woods with a playground across the parking lot; this is a great practice hike for young kids.

Picnic and sight-seeing: This state-managed recreation area is located just a few miles south of I-70 on the shores of Cagle’s Mill Lake. It has many of the amenities of a state park including a seasonal aquatic center (extra charge), nature center, and camping. A boat launch is available as well as a beach area for swimming. Just a few miles away are Cataract Falls, home of Indiana’s largest waterfall. It’s an unexpected discovery in the middle of the rolling hills of west-central Indiana. You must stop by for a few hours and explore the Lower Falls and Upper Falls. Both are impressive at over 15 feet high with lots of places to view from the river bank. There’s a path that connects the two falls and allows you to wander along the riverbank.
